Reflections on current archaeological surveying

Pablo Rodriguez - Navarro



 Archaeology is the science of studying the arts, monuments and ancient objects through their remains. 

Since its inception, the methodology used to carry out this study has been based on the detailed drawing of these objects, to which other types of physical and chemical analysis were incorporated. 

In this way, we can say that all the archaeological objects and sites that we wish to analyze are drawn for their better knowledge, restoration and dissemination. 

However, although we can say that modern archaeology has existed as a discipline since the 19th century, it has been during the last decade, with the maturity of digital applications, when archaeological drawing has experienced a real revolution.
